FAIRFAX STATION, Va. (WUSA9) -- Fairfax County fire officials are investigating a fire in the Fairfax Station area from Friday that injured a firefighter.

Firefighters responded to a house at 6700 Tempo Lane on Friday night to see heavy smoke and fire coming from the attached two-car garage, according to officials. The firefighters requested a tanker task force to make sure an "adequate water supply would be available in the non-hydrant area," say officials in press release on Monday.

Firefighters were able to save a majority of the home, but two cars inside the garage were damage, say officials. Officials say the damage was worth an estimated at $100,000.

Officials say two people were at home when the fire broke out and discovered the fire when smoke pushed inside the home from a door leading to the garage. Both people got out without injury, according to officials.

The family was displaced and declined Red Cross support, say officials.

Officials tell us that one firefighter was transported for treatment of non-life threatening injuries to INOVA Fair Oaks Hospital. 

According to fire investigators, the fire started in the garage.
